Summary- ' thats not for US elites "
One of the biggest public supporters of the Affordable Care Act has reportedly decided that some of his staff should be exempted from the new law.
CNN reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.
That’s right, even House Majority Leader John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who have voted against the healthcare law dozens of times, have told their staff to sign up for insurance plans through the federal exchange.
The news will likely provide another talking point to critics of the healthcare law, commonly known as Obamacare. After all, members of Congress and their staff are not only required to buy insurance through the exchanges, they must buy plans in the “gold” tier, the second most-expensive option available.
Yahoo News has reached out to the offices of all 100 U.S. senators to see if any other members have exempted committee staff from the federal exchange.

... Boeing was founded in 2016..
Uhhh try 1916 thats about 97 years ago. Split up in about 1934 due to airmail act. Divions became United airlines, Hamilton standard, Pratt and WhisKey , stearman and various airfields
..In 1916, Boeing went into business with George Conrad Westervelt as B & W and founded the Pacific Aero Products Co. The company's first plane was the Boeing Model 1. When America entered the First World War in April 1917, Boeing changed the name of Pacific Aero Products Co. to Boeing Airplane Company and obtained orders from the United States Navy for 50 planes. At the end of the war, Boeing began to concentrate on commercial aircraft, secured contracts to supply airmail service and built a successful airmail operation and later passenger service that evolved into United Airlines...
In 1921 William Boeing married Bertha Marie Paschall. She had previously been married to Nathaniel Paschall, a real estate broker with whom she bore two sons, Nathaniel "Nat" Paschall Jr. and Cranston Paschall. These two sons became Boeing's stepsons. The couple had a son of their own, William E. Boeing Jr. The stepsons went into aviation manufacturing as a career. Nat Paschall was a sales manager for Douglas Aircraft and then McDonnell Douglas. William E. Boeing Jr. became a noted private pilot and industrial real estate developer.
In 1934, the United States government accused William Boeing of monopolistic practices. The same year, the Air Mail Act forced airplane companies to separate flight operations from development and manufacturing. William Boeing divested himself of ownership as his holding company, United Aircraft and Transport Corporation, broke into three separate entities:
United Aircraft Corporation, holding the former eastern US manufacturing (now United Technologies Corporation)
Boeing Airplane Company, with western US manufacturing, which later became The Boeing Company
United Air Lines for flight operations
FWIW AT SPEEA dues are based on average of total bargaining unit - seattle, portland, wichita etc. About 2/3 are techs and 1/3 R engine ears
For 2013 dues are 39.75 which by constit are 85 percent of average hourly wage
Gives $46.74/hour or for 2088 hours /year = $ 97, 645 yr.
well that is normally the case- where the LOCAL elects the N team and officers. But in the recent case- the so called international stepped in and bullied the local. Thats cuz the 'international " ( locals in ca na da ) has the gold- makes the rules.
well there were the english of course, then later came a few of our founding fathers including a guy named jefferson- but he died broke but left a nice house with a great view of the BACK entrance.
The dims celebrate him to this day . . .
you mean they lost all 10 viewers combined ? And its not MSNBC nor has it been for a decade. its MSDNC.
re slaves - they were just following the English customs of the time- and who do you think sold the slaves ? can you speel tribal leaders.
Of course they also found out that the commune bit ( socialist ) did not work too well, and thus they found that capitalism was a solution- everyone got a patch of property.
And later the dim o crats started the KKK.
but thats just the way it was ...
Even IRAN thinks so !
Despite the highly touted Iranian nuclear deal announced by the Obama administration over the weekend, the two sides still can't seem to agree on what it is they agreed to.
The aftermath of the deal struck early Sunday in Geneva has been marked by confusion. According to Iranian media, the country's Foreign Ministry is now claiming that the White House put out an invalid fact sheet about the agreement.
A ministry spokeswoman called it a "one-sided interpretation of the agreed text," and said parts of it "contradict" the actual plan, according to Fars News Agency.
The Foreign Ministry did not specify what language might have clashed with their interpretation of the agreement, but called the White House statement a "modified version of the deal" -- and released their own version of the plan.
That document, among other distinctions, recognizes Iran's "right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes,"
something the White House statement does not mention.
YEP- it';ll just be a Peaceful Nuke !!
at least they have a game plan- and usually execute it - and a certain amount of teamwork.
Compared to Boeing corner office types- green bay is miles ahead and 300 point favorites on management and teamwork issues.
Uhhh green bay packers are NOT in the top 3 to 5 companies that are responsible for the largest $$ value of exports which affect the Balance of trade and GDP.
Its not even apples ( washington type of course ) to oranges !!
you have nothing to lose but your chains - and excess pot- come to workers paridise !
A few days after her upset Seattle City Council victory, Kshama Sawant made national news when she said the government should use eminent domain to take over Boeing’s factories.
“We are doing the work!” she shouted at a rainy downtown rally. “Boeing should be owned by the workers.”
The suggestion seemed to surprise people, but it shouldn’t. Sawant, an Occupy Seattle protester and socialist, has proposed the same thing before.
“If Boeing executives want to leave the state, they are welcome to do that,” she told a cheering crowd at Town Hall Seattle in 2012. “The fact is, the workers are here. The factories are here. ... We are therefore calling for the democratic, public ownership by workers and by the community of the workplaces of the big corporations.”
welcome to real life versions of Animal; Farm - or perhaps Animal house ;-PP
YEP - the CONS, CROOKS, and CADAVER votes will do it every time- such as in the great Soviet Socialist State of washington, and the socialist sity of Seattle..
